We have one of the largest teams of food and agricultural lawyers in the country, with experts specialising in every legal element of the food supply chain.

Businesses in the food and agri-sector have to contend with complex commercial imperatives and regulations. 

Some have to deal with subsidies, the environment and gang labour, while others are focused on food safety, food quality, labelling and marketing. Health and safety, employment, tenancies, leases, competition, joint ventures, insurance, partnerships, corporate mergers, acquisitions and disposals, banking and finance and commercial agreements....the list of potential issues is seemingly never-ending.

We understand the issues you face and can deal with the legal technicalities, helping you keep track of regulatory requirements and providing robust, practical advice to guide you when you need it.
